Books I have completed reading since January 2021:

1. The Enchanted - Rene Denfield
Wednesday, March 7, 2007
Today, with a happy smiling face entered the office to collect my free tickets but only to be told that the tickets were finished distributing. Excuse me? If that's the case, why did I receive your stupid congratulatory email saying I got the ticket awaiting me to be collected between yesterday and today between 10 am and 10 pm? I was extremely disappointed not because I was dying to watch, just because the sponsor is not honest enough. I just feel cheated or deceived by their words. If you know you can't provide tickets to all people who registered for a free ticket, then say so. Don't let us get loose in a stupid wild goose chase where you are laughing so hyena-tically observing us. Many sponsors also give out free tickets but they state "only 20 tickets [let say] will be given away on first come first serve basis." At least, it is stated that 20 tickets will be given away. And these people were lining up up early in the morning. If you, YTL sent an email to people like me, we thought, we were chosen for the tickets. We don't need a damn congratulatory email to inform us the redemption time and venue. We want to know if we got it or not. I'm going to express my disappointment to the sponsor.

Is this what I call ethical?

Draw your own house

What's the meaning of my house?

Based on your drawing and the 10 answers you gave this is a summary of your personality:

Your house tells the world that you ought to be a leader. You are a freedom lover and a strong person. You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. Once you have a problem, you need a friend with you. Your life is always full of changes.

You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. You see the world as it is, not as you believe it should be.

You added a flower into your drawing. The flower signifies that you long for love. It also safe to say that others don't see you as a flirt. You don't think much about yourself.

I updated my blog with 2 cheesecake recipe and hope you guys will like it. I guess so since I have received comments that they look yummy. I just saw them in the newspaper and I thought it would be a great idea for me to put them in the blog just in case I'll be looking for a cheesecake recipe.

I'm extremely happy today because I received a message that sounds like this:


THANK YOU. The response received for the Malaysian premiere of the Oscar-winning documentary - An Inconvenient Truth has certainly exceeded our expectations!

Chocolate Cheesecake
Tuesday, March 6, 2007
Ingredients (crust)

200g shelled pistachios, toasted and finely chopped
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
120g butter, melted

Ingredients (cake)
240g chocolate, chopped
780g cream cheese, softened
1 1/4 cups plus 2 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp salts
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

Ganache topping
120g chocolate, chopped
1/2 cups plus 2 tbsp heavy cream

1. For the crust: combine chopped pistachios, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter in a small bowl. Wrap a 22cm cardboard cake circle with plastic wrap. Carefully press the nut mixture onto the cake circle, making sure to cover it completely. Cover and refrigerate for at least for 1 hour.

2. For the cake: Preheat the oven to 160 C. Encase the outside of a 22cm round springform pan in a luminium foil and set aside. Have ready a large roasting pan and kettle of just-boiled water.

3. In a small bowl, melt the chocolate gently over a double boiler. Set aside to cool.

4. Beat cream cheese, sugar and salt with a mixer on low speed until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add cream and vanilla extract. With the mixer running on low speed, gradually add melted chocolate and mix thoroughly.

5. Pour the batter into the pan, then place the pan in the bigger roasting pan. Transfer to the middle oven rack, and pour boiled water into the roasting pan until it comes halfway up the side of the springform pan.

6. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes, until the top is just set. The cake should jiggle slightly when the pan is tapped. Remove pan from the oven and cool on a rack. Cover with aluminium foil and refrigerate overnight.

7. For the ganache topping: Bring the cream to a boil, then pour over chopped chocolate in the bowl. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Set aside.

8. To assemble: Loosen cheesecake by carefully running a warm, dry knife around the inside edge of the springform pan. Unhinge the sides of the pan and remove. Leave the springform pan bottom under the cheesecake.

9. Invert the pistachio crust onto the top of the cheesecake and carefully peel off the cake circle and plastic wrap while gently pressing the crust into the cheesecake.

10. Place a serving plate on top of the crust, then invert the cheesecake. Remove the springform bottom that is now at the top. Slide a knife under it, if necessary. Pour the ganache on the cheesecake and spread to cover the top. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios, if desired.

11. Refrigerated for several hours or better yet, overnight.

Get over your rice bowl
Monday, March 5, 2007
I am exhausted. Hopefully I will dream of leng chai again tonight. I'm so exhausted that I can't breathe, my head is throbbing and my eyes are bulging. But of course I want my leng chai. Bwahahaha

Because I was tired, I told my friend who is a manager that earns 5 figures a month that I was exhausted. She told me why I should fret over a job that is less than RM 2 000. I looked at her and could see her sinister smile. But I'm not mad because why should I? Just think for a sec. What is the point of having endless money without having a fulfilled life? Why live a regretful life even if you have so much money? What is the point of having so much money even you don't know what's going on with this world? She's like that. I tried to dig info about her interests whatsoever and discover that she only loves money. She doesn't know anything about environment, politics or some big murder cases. She only knows about money. What is the point of having so much money but if you are just an empty person? Money is not everything.

I'm gravely concern for living a regretful life. I have seen adults wasting their time idling in homes doing nothing just because they think they are old and useless to do anything except waiting for death. Is life all about this? I'm honest to myself that I don't want to die young. Even if I were to die young, I would die as a knowledgeable person who has no regrets. A person who has 'been there and done that.' This is what I care. This is what I call life.

So get over your rice bowl.

I know I have been missing for too long but I was too tired to update the blog. Imagine I have been sleeping after 12 am since the last blog entry. I was attending night classes, wedding dinner and then stress with my workloads. And then on Saturday, I was so tired until I dreamed of marrying some unknown lengchai[handsome] during my afternoon nap. No joke. But oh well, the dream was overall cute. And yea now sobbing because jolenesiah has totally forgotten about me. *Blame the tigers in Pahang*

I had my scalp treatment today in my regular hair saloon. And you know what? I made one of the hairdressers to wash his hand before touching my hair. How? Why? Easy. He was mopping the floor after one of his workmates finished sweeping. Then he returned the mop into its original position. My eyes were on him all the time. He came out from the storeroom too fast. That indicated he didn't even bothered to wash his hand. So when he attended to my hair, I avoided his touch and asked him " Did you wash your hands after touching the mop." He looked at me with a big question mark, he replied "NO" vey innocently. And then I said "Please wash your hands" 3 times to him. He just looked at me without a hinge of understanding what he did. We just laughed. But he did washed his hands. Let just say I'm a hygiene freak.
